London - Former England captain and head coach Martin Johnson was on Tuesday banned from driving after being found guilty of speeding at over 161km/h.
The 43-year-old, who captained England to Rugby World Cup glory in 2003, was pulled over by police in Somerset, southwest England, in August after being recorded driving at a speed of 103 miles per hour.
He admitted a charge of speeding and was disqualified from driving for 49 days.
"Mr Johnson was travelling at 103 miles per hour on the M5 (motorway) between junction 23 and 22 at Puriton in Somerset," said a court spokeswoman.
"Mr Johnson entered a guilty plea at the earliest opportunity. He was fined £800, costs of £35 and a victim surcharge of £80. He was also disqualified from driving for 49 days."
A former second-row forward, Johnson is considered one of England's greatest ever players and toured three times with the Britain and Irish Lions. He coached England, less successfully, between 2008 and 2011.
